6 essential haircare tips

Hair looks more beautiful with the right care, but more importantly, it makes you feel confident and ready to take on the day. Knowing how to take care of hair is a science that we’ve mastered, so here we break it down in six, easy-to-adopt healthy-hair tips.

    Brush up on healthy-hair tips

    Even the humble hairbrush becomes an essential tool when it’s used properly. One of our favorite hair tips and tricks is to brush hair for a couple of minutes at least twice a day to spread naturally hydrating oils from root to tip. Go easy on tangled wet hair by using a gentle wide-toothed comb or brush (instead of the usual bristles), and don’t forget to wash your combs and brushes once a month to keep them fresh, clean and free of product residue.

    Listen to your hair

    Not literally of course, but do think about your hair type, texture and damage level. Your hair is as unique as you are, so how to take care of hair depends on your own personal needs. Luckily, finding the right formula is simple, because the science has already been done for you. Thin hair? Volumize with Dove Nourishing Secrets Thickening Ritual. Or frizzy? Tame it with Dove Nutritive Solutions Anti-Frizz Oil Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner.

    Haircare tips: wash confident

    There is no such thing as a hair-washing rulebook, so wash your hair only as often as you need to feel happy and confident. For an extra boost, keep hair fresh and smelling beautiful in-between washes with a dry shampoo like Dove Refresh+Care Fresh Coconut Dry Shampoo. No time for a traditional wash? One of our favorite hair tips and tricks is to revive second day hair with dry shampoo. Give hair a few quick sprays at the roots, massage in and then brush out for hair that’s refreshed and volumized.

    Hydration haircare tips

    You moisturize your skin every day, so discover how to take care of hair with the same level of hydration by conditioning after every wash. Use a rich conditioner, such as the hydrating Dove Nutritive Solutions Daily Moisture, and in return, your hair will be sumptuously soft, less tangled and more manageable.

    Nourish from the inside…

    While most hair tips and tricks might make hair look better, the real answer is to nourish hair from within, giving hair the resilience to deal with the everyday stresses it faces. Our hair masks do just this, so envelop strands in a luxurious mask, such as Dove Nutritive Solutions Anti-Frizz Oil Therapy Hair Mask, at least once a week for hair that is as strong as it is soft.

    … and protect from the outside

    We’re all too familiar with the cycle of damage that heat styling can cause, but rather than forcing hair into submission, break the cycle by protecting it from damage in the first place. Our tip for healthy hair is to form a barrier between heat and hair by using Dove Style+Care Heat-Protect Spray. It helps to preserve the naturally protective lipid layer, meaning your hair can be beautifully styled, and soft and healthy too.
